Happy November and a New Banner

Snoopy just represents the Holidays to me.  When I was growing up almost all of the Holidays had a Charlie Brown Program to celebrate the season.  I guess its that memory of three little girls gathered around the tv to watch the Charlie Brown special that still says Happy Holiday to me. 

On the menu this month is a new craft project - Tie Dyed Shoelaces.  

 This is what they are supposed to look like.

This is me mid-process.  Not sure how close they will look to the ones above. 
I'll post finished product tomorrow.

Also keeping my fingers busy is my scarf knitting.  You may remember that I only knit scarves.  Sometimes I sell them on Etsy but mostly I just take them to Thanksgiving dinner and let the sisters, daughter, and niece take their pick.  

This one I finished first.  I didn't really care for the way the pattern came out.  It is also thicker and shorter in size than I usually make.  Different people, different preferences so I make a variety of widths and lengths. 

This is my current project.  I will keep this for me.  With my hair, white looks good on me as well as some blues.  This one is going to be thin and very long so I can wrap it around my neck several times.  This will be my new Dog Walking Scarf. 

And a little giggle to close the program. 

No, I'm not trying to look like a Kardashian.  My pockets are full of Pecans. 

More later....


  1. Ha ha, do you suppose they do that also?? Those shoe laces are a attention getting. Be sure to show us your.

  2. Pretty projects! And glad it's only pecans and not you trying to go all big butt. lol What is with that?? I bet it's a guy thing, as in my guy likes big butts and he cannot lie. lol But dang!

    1. I totally know what you mean. How did that ever become desirable?

  3. I love the tie dyed shoelaces what a great idea.
    The scarfs are very pretty as well. I may start that for my winter project. Keeps me from eating while watching tv. :-)

    1. I find that when I'm hyper and can't slow down from a trying day at work, knitting seems to deactivate the need to be accomplishing something.
